Alberto Di Castro
For well over a century Alberto Di Castro has been a prestigious name among antiques galleries. Established in Rome in 1878, the Gallery is today owned and directed by Alberto Di Castro, grandson of the founder. Collectors, connoisseurs, art historians, curators and dealers from all over the world are attracted by the distinctiveness and exceptionality of the objects displayed. Alberto Di Castro exhibits what he loves most. Refusing to be swayed by market pressure, he merges personal passion with a rigorous historical-artistic approach as he leads us through works befitting a museum, intriguing curiosities appropriate to a wunderkammer. Centuries are unveiled: from the majesty that was Ancient Rome through the Medieval to the Neoclassical. Here, alongside extraordinary tabletops in coloured marble, hardstone and mosaic by Giacomo Raffaelli and contemporaries, we encounter 18th century furniture inlaid with exotic woods commissioned by princely patrons. Old Masters paintings, vedutas, 14th and 15th century goldgrounds gaze upon magnificent bronzes, terracottas and chased silver.
